BJP returns fire, says Cong behind many terror acts

PNS | New Delhi

Soon after the Congress accused the RSS of having links with SIMI,(LOL)-NK the BJP returned fire, claiming the ruling party was behind many terror activities and communal riots that took place in the country.

Getting into a verbal duel with the Congress on terrorism, the BJP tried to substantiate its claim by listing out the alleged relationship between three Congress Ministers and the ULFA in Assam, conviction of its Ministers in Gujarat in communal riots case and the tacit understanding it was having with Maoists in Andhra Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.

"The Jamat-e-Ulema-Hind has submitted lists of 40 Congress leaders to Sonia Gandhi. They are names of those involved in the Godhra riots. Congress Seva Dal member Vimal Mushari, who is a close associate of the State Revenue Minister Bhumidhar Barman, has been arrested for his role in the recent serial bomb blasts in Assam," BJP spokesman Prakash Javadekar said.

The Congress, he said, which had spoken in favour of Madani, the Coimbatore bomb blasts accused, in the State Assembly of Kerala and which always worked hand in glove with Maoists, had no moral right to hurl baseless allegations against others.

Accusing the Congress of communalising the sensitive issue of terrorism and adopting a policy of 'spit & run' through baseless allegations against the nationalist organizations, the BJP said the ruling party appeared to be doing this exercise of politicising terrorism with a sinister design to save itself from the nationwide anger against its soft policy towards terrorism.

Taking a critical view of 'selective leaks' by Maharashtra Anti-Terrorist Squad probing the Malegaon blast in which some Hindu religious leaders and an Army official are suspects, BJP also accused the Congress Government in the State of 'pressurising and directing' the investigation.

"The BJP charges the Congress Government in Maharashtra with pressurising, directing and misusing the ATS probe for its selfish political benefit. Congress is speaking more than the ATS. And why the selective leaks?" Javadekar asked.

The party spokesman alleged the Congress Government had forced ATS to close down inquiry into the serial train blasts in Mumbai on the request of some leaders who felt the sentiments of a religious community would be hurt.

"The State Government never allowed the ATS to conduct any scientific tests like narco analysis, polygraph tests on any of the suspects in that instance," Javadekar said.

"Similarly, the earlier 2006 Malegaon blasts case was handed over to the CBI only for political benefits," he said.
